Jets released WR Josh Doctson. 

New York also released CB Kyron Brown, TE Connor Davis, OL Leo Kolamatangi, K Chase McLaughlin, and WR Jaleel Scott. McLaughlin has bounced around as a spot starter and will likely catch on with another team this summer. Docston, the 22nd overall pick by Washington in the 2016 NFL Draft, opted out of the 2020 season. He's now three years removed from his best pro season -- a 44-catch campaign in 2018. Doctson, 28, should be able to land on a practice squad in 2021.

I guess Chris Naggar has a real shot to be the jets kicker on opening day

I was surprised that the Jets moved on from McLaughlin so quickly. A good sign for Naggar, the Jets seem to really like him.

They need to settle on a good kicker and stick with him... Let’s face it... You need a good one and it’s important. Very important. They seem to not care who kicks and get burned by it. Granted, they’ve sucked for so long it hasn’t really mattered. Still I feel it needs to be addressed

You have to be willing to stick with a guy if he shows the talent in practice but has some hiccups early in his career with some bad misses in games. Once a K starts feeling that his kicks are all routine and he has had plenty of game kicks experience, they settle down and their talent can shine through. 

I always feel they should’ve stuck with the kid who went to Seattle. I know some will say- NO! Looks what he did after he left- yeah he missed a few, but for the reasons you just stated... It just further illustrates my point.

Safety Saquan Hampton from Rutgers was also placed on reserve/physically unable to perform list. Didn't even know he was on the roster. He tore his Achilles in the Seattle game. If he comes back healthy he could also be moved to LB. 6'1 210..4.5 40..2019 6th round draft pick of Saints 

Overview

Hampton showed glimpses of becoming a potential star during his first three years with the Scarlet Knights, but injuries to both shoulders shortened his sophomore and junior seasons.

Safety prospect with good size whose college versatility could get whittled down to a more specific role. Hampton might not have the agility and coverage twitch to handle man coverage in the slot, and his run support is too passive when he's backed way off the line. His run support is more instinctive and effective as a down safety and he should be able to handle man coverage on big tight ends. He will need to crank up the aggression level and consistently play to his size to make it as a backup in the league.

Strengths

  • Team captain, team leader
  • Possesses NFL size with a frame to add more
  • Offers big nickel and dime linebacker options

By mid-season it would be nice seeing Naggar with a Rodrigo Blankenship type trajectory heading into the last half of the season. Solid 32/37 & 43/45 XP.
2 misses in 1 game

And, unlike with just about any other position on the team, once you find your guy and he grows into the job, he can hang around for a long time.  Many of these kickers are still good from 50+ yards into their late 30's...

Letting a pro bowl kicker go over a million or two was just another in a long line of idiotic moves by mccagnan.

ugh still dont understand how we let Jason Myers go...guy was 24-24 with a long of 61 yards last year. prob lost like 5 games in the last 2 years just on kicks.

Meyers was terrible the year after the Jets released him. Good to see he bounced back.

With his past history, he just didn't fit in.  Sometimes the things you do when you are young catch up with you.

Myers was going to stand in the way of the Jets true objective. 😉

To be fair they actually HAVE NOT gotten burned by it very much. Up until the last couple of seasons they have been able to find kickers seemingly off the scrap heap who end up having good seasons. 

2016 was the last year they had Nick Folk, who played well for the Jets for a few years. Then in 2017 they got Catanzaro, who was solid. Then in 2018 they had Myers, who was very good. Then in 2019 they had Ficken, who was solid. Then in 2020 Ficken got hurt and Castillo was not very good. Which leads us to our current state of affairs.  

Would it be nice to have one really good kicker, of course. But it hasn't been their biggest issue the past few years. They could have resigned Myers going into 2019 but he actually went on to have a so-so season after signing a pretty hefty contract with the Seahawks.
